Dental Implants are a valuable alternative to an uncomfortable prosthesis like dentures. The implants themselves are small screws produced from titanium that serve a purpose similar to the roots of natural teeth. They are fused to the jawbone and support prosthesis and dental bridges, helping them perform as our natural teeth would. Once the implants are put in place, you’ll be able to replace anything from a missing tooth to a whole set of teeth.
Given the numerous benefits and aesthetic qualities Dental Implants offer, they have become the preferred method of tooth replacement today.
What are the benefits to having a 3D X-Ray?
Dental Implant treatment is much more than a simple cosmetic solution. The implant itself (the invisible screw-like structure below the gum line) provides the foundation or support for a dental crown that sits on top of the implant and is the visible portion of the tooth.
The implant replaces the root structure (i.e., support) for the tooth, providing a stable base and preventing the prosthesis from sliding or moving like dentures.
Once placed, replacement teeth are difficult to distinguish from your natural teeth. Dr. Sadiq, who is the restorative dentist, will adapt the color, shape, and contour of the new teeth to match your natural teeth. In effect, you'll feel like you have your smile back.
3Shape Trios Digital Impression Scanner
Our Trios 3Shape Digital Impression Scanners make the process of taking impressions faster, easier, and more accurate. The process consists of a scan with a wand that allows us to highlight relevant areas that are sent to the lab for abutment and crown preparation.
The Trios 3 Digital Impression Scanners provide a more realistic scan experience in which we are able to better evaluate clinical situations through the use of natural colors and high definition photos. These features allow for better case documentation that we can easily relay to our patients.
Our protocol can eliminate additional appointments that would normally be necessary, which helps take away the hassle and stress from patients having to rearrange their busy schedules. Moreover, patients will not gag on traditional impression materials!
Einstein 3D Printer
Einstein’s incredibly innovative digital workflow and 3D printers allow us to make accurate and highly reliable dental parts and biocompatible appliances, like dentures, crowns and bridges, clear retainers, and surgical guides, faster and more affordably than existing alternatives right in our office. It’s all part of Dr. Sadiq’s commitment to the next generation of digital dental practices.
